Programme description

This master program in physics offers four different disciplines:

Each discipline covers different fields of physics tightly linked to the respective research group that is relevant to the chosen field. Throughout the master program, you will work closely with this research group. You will be working with practical and theoretical problems, using state-of-the-art equipment and modern techniques for solving research and industrial problems.

Teaching and assessment

The courses in the program have varied forms of instruction, typically lectures, exercises, laboratory work, computer work, or combinations of these.
Special curricula, project papers and the Master's thesis are supervised on an individual basis by the department's academic staff, possibly in collaboration with external companies or institutions by agreement.
Form of assessment varies, but may include a take-home exam, project paper or laboratory report, in combination with a final oral or written exam. In some courses, mandatory assignments have to be approved for access to the exam.
After handing in the Master's thesis, it is assessed, and normally within 6 weeks an oral presentation and examination is held, that may influence on the final mark.

Language of instruction

Language of instruction is English and all of the syllabus material is in English. Examination questions will be given in English, but may be answered either in English or in a Scandinavian language.

In addition, the Master's thesis may be written either in English or in a Scandinavian language.

Exchange possibilities

There are several possibilities for exchanges abroad. The exchange period depends on your individual study plan, and should be planned in collaboration with the student advisor and the student’s supervisor.

Job prospectives

The program leads to a wide variety of career options both domestic and abroad within research, industry and administration.

You will have the opportunity to work with:
- Earth observation
- Application and system development
- Climate and energy management
- Consulting
- Environmental monitoring
- Climate modelling
- Sensor technology
- Rocket and space research
- Statistic analysis

Access to further studies

Completed Master's degree studies qualify for admission to PhD-studies in physics, depending on satisfactory marks in the Master's and Bachelor's degree. PhD-studies in physics are offered at UiT The Arctic University of Norway.
